An exceptional, Rallye Sport Mk2 Ford Escort RS Mexico For Sale (1977)
An exceptional, very rare Rallye Sport Mk2 Ford Escort RS Mexico.
Two circular halogen headlights, front air dam, rubberised tail spoiler, unique bodyside stripes, ‘Mexico’ decals, two black door mirrors, laminated windscreen, simulated leather covered sports steering wheel, hazard warning flashers, heated rear window, separate fuel, water temperature and oil pressure gauges, padded sun visors, two-speed heater, aeroflow ventilation with eye ball vents. Accessories: Classic 100BT radio.
The exterior of this iconic RS Mexico is simply beautiful. Finished in desirable Diamond White it has a stunning sheen and looks fabulous with all the black contrasting Mexico decals. The distinctive squared-up nose styling and front air dam has no stone chips and informs knowledgeable onlookers to the scarcity of this model only built between January 1976 and July 1978. All the trim is perfect, window rubbers are black and all decals are correct and present. The underside is body coloured and fully detailed for the show circuit. Photographs reveal the amazing work undertaken and no evidence of a colour change is visible despite be noted in 2012. Utterly gorgeous and a real show stopper.
The interior of this RS Mexico offers simple sporting pleasure. The twin high back reclining Scheel front seats in Black fabric with head restraints and are perfectly clean and offer incredible support. The carpets, washable black headlining and door cards are all unmarked. All the gauges and warning lights function correctly with the ‘RS’ logo within the five white needle instrument cluster reminding the driver how special this Ford is. The padded dash has no cracks and the Ford Britax labels on the seatbelts remain attached as do the green BSI Approved stickers to the seatbelt buckles! Convenience features have been fitted such as the centre console, glovebox and Classic 100BT radio. The boot area is spotlessly clean.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Visually identical from the same era and part of the ‘Pinto’ family, a 1993cc single overhead camshaft engine performs faultlessly and is a recognised period improvement to the 1593cc unit. Amazingly clean for those enjoying bonnet-up exhibiting. A top speed of 108mph and 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds can be expected. A standard 4-speed gearbox offers light, short and responsive changes. Delightful.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This stunning example is fitted with the standard Bright Silver painted RS Mexico steel 5.5x13in sculptured sports wheels in immaculate condition. Branded 185/60 R13 tyres are fitted with ample tread. Vacuum servo assisted front disc brakes and rear drum brakes pull the car up to a safe halt.
With only around 2,500 Mk2 Ford Mexico’s made, (source Ford RS Owners Club), this car represents a rare breed! Positioned awkwardly in price and specification between a 1600 Sport and an RS2000 when new, the Mexico had a very short production run and therefore is now a highly sought after model amongst collectors. Supplied new on the 1st May 1977 this car has been owned by respected RS enthusiasts including the current Ford Escort RS2000 Registrar, Mr Alan Sherwood. His knowledge on the vehicle both in terms of the cars provenance and authenticity and some of the previous owners will help reassure any potential buyer. Photographs of the car prior to the cars full restoration and during the intensive works help explain why this example will be the pride of any collection. The vehicle is registered with the RS Owners Club.
